Alright, this is my build for SNK's Iori Yagami from KOF as DLC guest fighter, since the company involves to Capcom's vs. crossover series. It is based on his post-XI appearance and had his moves mixed between his XIII (both Normal and EX)/XI/SvC/NGBC/MIA/CvS2. He also will be Wolvie's rival, due to their badass attitudes.

Theme: Arashi no Saxaphone (XIII)


Iori is the heir to one of the three clans that sealed the legendary snake entity, Orochi, 1,800 years ago. His clan, formerly known as the Yasakani (八尺瓊, Yasakani), wields pyrokinetic powers. They keep the seal over Orochi intact with help from the Kusanagi and Yata clans using three ancient artifacts. His family's treasure is the Yasakani no Magatama (八尺瓊曲玉, Yasakani no Magatama) and his family crest is the crescent moon, which he wears on the back of his old jacket. He is the initial enemy and eventual rival of Kyo Kusanagi. During the aftermath of the XI tournament, Iori's went berserk into Orochi Iori and his Magatama was stolen by a person name Ash Crimson. After the disappearance of Ash's existence in aftermath of XIII tournament, he regained his flames. Back in action, he challenges Kyo to an undecided outcome.
